Program for Feb. 19
In his 20 years with the News Journal. Esteban Parra (Steve) has covered it all - from midnight fires to prison issues, community concerns to raging fires. Currently he is the "Breaking News" reporter. Times are changing. No longer does a reporter carry along a pen and notepad. He takes notes and pictures with the phone, writes them on his iPad and submits them to his editor. The shift has also been for each reporter to brand themselves by speaking to groups and getting their name in the public, with hopes of gaining more trust from patrons.

Program for Feb. 26
Stacey Schiller is president of the Board of the Delaware Adolescent Program (DAPI).Since the 1960's nearly 100 young pregnant girls each year in the three counties are supported in helping them complete their education and receive their high school diplomas, as well as learn the basics of running a household, how to care for their infant and be ready to enter the workforce.

Work days at Camp Fairlee – without leaving home!

Since we have a tight Spring schedule and usually have a challenge in getting a work crew together for Camp Fairlee’s Spring cleanup, we are taking a different direction. We will be filling 40 Welcome Baskets for the camp counselors. A list of items needed will be circulated so each member can participate in the project. More info to come…

No Money, No Ad in 2015 Report

Because there were (and still are) so many outstanding payments for ads in the last Report to the Community, a new rule is in place: If money for an ad is not received by April 15, the ad will not be published. Please start your sales opportunities early so we do not have to disappoint anyone when the 2015 Report hits the newsstands at the end of May.

Stop Hunger Now - again

On Saturday morning, May 9, we will host another Stop Hunger Now food packaging event, along with Bill Sullivan’s students from the Hotel Restaurant Management Training program. We will need about 25 Rotarian volunteers. Spouses and family members are welcomed. A sign up sheet will come around in a few weeks.

Thought for the Week:

The good old days were days that I could master – the pace was slower and I was faster!

Can’t make our meeting?

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.

All Rotarians are welcomed to attend another club’s meeting. Be prepared to pay for your meal and bring the makeup slip back to our secretary for attendance and invoice credit.
